national sunshine week. it is no secret that open government is under attack in san francisco. someone gets a title and already he thinks he is an aristocrat who should be able to make his self-serving deals at the expense of the public without interference from democracy. there was a time when open records laws public library were both involved in serving a democratic right to know and empowering the people. that was before the library and san francisco government decided that serving the interests of the so-called aeries toe contracts could be turned into a private income stream. ~ you have become so enslaved to private money you decided right to know is a place to save money. if we want a democracy, we need open institutions of knowledge that allow access to the truth. saving money on those institutions of knowledge is like selling our children. it is no accident that the san francisco public library is the most egregious sunshine violator in the city. once it is a private income stream, the philanthropyists want power and exclusivityity. the destruction of democracy is wha

other gaps that we have regarding dtx and electrification. it's great that san francisco i think is really ahead of the curve amongst all the counties in really coming out to bat for both high-speed rail and electrification. it's really great to see that there's so much effort and energy moving forward on this. but i think as much as possible, until we come to consensus we should really leave all the options out there and open that we are evaluating everything. i know there will be a number of concerns about the 2 80 in the neighborhood that i represent in south beach and mission bay. i don't have a position either way. i really want to see what the studies look like, what the boulevard look like, the freeway and the growth and impacts we're expecting. but i also have heard some perspectives that we can underground 2 80 at 16th street while still keeping the 2 80 up as well. i just want to mike sure we have all of these options out of the table. ~ make sure the one thing i think we're all unified on is we don't want to see a double grade separation at 16th. i think everyone agree

that addresses a dire crisis for san francisco's city college and what they face this year with their accreditation process. and as we look forward also to a hearing that will be coming up later this month at the board. my resolution that i urge support for would help us pass assembly bill 11 99 authored by assemblyman paul fong, but also sponsored by assemblyman bill ting and tom ammiano as well. city college, as you know, serves one in 10 san franciscans. it has one of our top nursing programs in the state and half of our public school graduates in san francisco start college in higher education there. it also is critical for the future of our work force in san francisco as it trains adult workers and gives them new skills that better their lives and to get better jobs. as we work together to protect and strengthen city college, this resolution is really important in allowing the city college to move forward with more flexibility in its funding. the sanctions that may be placed against city college by the accrediting agency really is being promoted in many ways from effor
here in san francisco. i also think it's important that you have to recognize that you have a lot of work outside the youth commission you work on. you've been instrumental in helping to set up mission prep school in the excelsior district and have brought me into the work of the school as well. so, i want to thank you for that. prior to any of this and people don't know about is that you were actually a child actor.

of health care in san francisco, and as i said earlier today, i very much appreciate everyone who is part of the negotiating operating room that resuscitated this critical project. and i also want to echo the thanks that have already been described. there are so many folks that we need to give credit to moving us to where we are today, starting first and foremost with the tremendous community coalition that has been working for many years across so many different policy and community areas. i, of course, also want to start by thanking our mediator lou jirardo who was tremendous and this project would not be where it is today without his leadership. clearly there was also tremendous leadership within the city. we need to single out ken rich for the millions of hours that he spent working on this as well as with many department heads and, of course, our mayor. and then i want to take a moment and just thank supervisors campos and farrell. i know that campos, farrell, chiu are three supervisorial names not discussed together in a sentence but each of our colleagues plate a critical and equal
and dedication and passion living here and involved in san francisco. and i know this is not a good-bye, and i look forward to the next phase in your brilliant career. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you. well, mario, we're going to definitely miss you, although obviously you're not going to be going far. you know, the way i got to know you or we got to know each other, i think the most was through the free muni for youth debate and we were obviously on opposite sides of that debate. [speaker not understood]. we were obviously on opposite sides of that debate and that was difficult debate. and i know you were very, very passionate about the proposal and i had my own strong view. and the one thing that always struck me about you is that you, whatever the disagreement, you were always just so professional and kind and courteous and very persistent in pushing what you thought was right. but just incredibly professional. i always really appreciated that. i'll tell you and this is i guess advice to a lot of different advocates that engaging with someone you disagree with in a professional and produc
cpmc to continue a baseline level of taking care of charity care in san francisco. this is a need, we know we're going to have to continue regardless of what happens with obamacare. the new term sheet continues that commitment, as well as continues to ensure that additional medi-cal [speaker not understood] patient lives will be protected. about 30,000 charity care patients per year are commited in this new term sheet and an additional 5400 new medi-cal managed care patient lives of which 1500 will come through a primary care provider in the tenderloin are part of this deal. another topic that was very important to the community is around local hire and work force training. as in the original da, cpmc will hire at least 30% of all construction jobs from san francisco, but we have also improved the provisions for future permanent jobs. originally the deal called for 40 jobs a year for five years. we used our local hiring ordinance and i want to thank supervisor avalos for his leadership on that, such that in this deal 40% of new entry level permanent jobs over the next decade which tar
or local san francisco. earning more than 150 grand. i don't know any entry level people that will earn more than 150 grand. so, let's just strike that one, but let's still keep the 50%. we did some analysis of our hires and those sorts of things as of the end of last year. and we were at 80% of new entry level hires regardless of salary. another requirement is 30% small business participation. what's small business? i mean, i profess not to really understand that. what have we done if we looked at all of our vendors? 41% of all authority [speaker not understood] is local. we go further. 31% of america's cup authority staff, skilled, unskilled, entry level or specialist, are all local. i think pretty importantly, 51% of all vendor staff are local. if i could add to that, i believe that percentage is actually going to get better because we've let a lot of the larger contracts, the backfill will be smaller contracts that support the big ones. i expect those numbers to get even better than they currently are. so, in summary on the local hiring, i would suggest the following. firstly, as i

, this is a lot of why we want to bring the america's cup to san francisco. and i would, i would like to point out again the commitment to pay prevailing wages on a temporary event, not a construction event, a privately run event, is a significant sort of concession during the agreement. and as you know, supervisor, you were very much involved in the sort of negotiation of the final workforce plan provided by the america's cup authority. certainly if we had it to do over again, we would love to avoid this conversation. but looking at where we are now, i just want to echo what supervisor farrell said. i'm very appreciative of the event authority and studios saying we want to make this right for the worker. ~ hartman through this crucible we have a much better template moving forward. certainly through what olse did we're able to identify potential pitfalls going forward and we have a much better line of communication and sort of spotting those issues ahead of time. so, with the much larger events coming this summer, we want to use these lessons learned and make this event deliver on its promises. h

particularly building around the library. of course in san francisco it takes the village people. that's a little different. i remember teaching at the bay view school and how challenged the parents were to provide an education for these kids and now neglected this area was and we have turned this around because of our spirituality and work ethics and pride. so god love us all. this is a beautiful beautiful building and anytime you want any help, anytime night or day, please feel free to call supervisor malia. no, you can call me. thanks. >> thank you, tom. >> so we are getting excited about coming inside, aren't we? we are almost there. once you are inside take a look at the beautiful art inside. the san francisco art commissions local artist and we are so proud that the local artist is from the bay view. his name is ron sanders. his artwork is truly inspiring. they are what they call photo grams. there is two of them, one is spirit of nature dancing together and the other one is symbiotic relationship. one of them is inside the beautiful courtyard and the other one is inside the libr
such as san francisco administrative code section 6.22 g do not apply to the event and activities associated with it. ~ but because the city has agreed to reimburse the event authority for all amounts expended on construction contracts, the parties have agreed to apply the provisions of section 6.22 g. there is no reimbursement. the event authority is not being reimbursed one cent for any construction contracts being undertaken. so, all i can say to this committee is the foundation stone upon which the workforce plan was prepared and upon which the event authority agreed to pay prevailing wage and all the other things have been removed. and yet we have still voluntarily agreed to do it. and, so, in the backdrop of that, i really do question the tone here. the tone of innuendo that would try to tell somebody they were not trying to do the right thing. >> so, did you not agree to prevailing wage? >> we agreed to prevailing wage on the basis that we would be reimbursed for construction work. beyond construction work we were being reimbursed for. so, the memorandum of understanding that has sub

and base it on some projections on how san francisco would be a little bit different? i'm just wondering how you came to that seemingly rosy picture that you gave us in 2010. >> well, i would submit that in 2010 it wasn't seemingly rosy. much of the community that looked at this report, that report agreed with us that they thought we were being relatively conservative. the numbers in terms of syndicates and the other assumptions, the only thing that we had to if by was previous history. san diego played a role in that, valencia played a role in that. new zealand and other america's cup events played a role helping us accommodate to the number of syndicates we might expect. at the time we really had no idea what the global economic situation was going to be. we had no idea some maybe, but less of an idea what type of boat was going to be used and [speaker not understood] syndicates. there was a lot we didn't know in 2010 that we do know now. and now in this report we've incorporated the best information that's available to us in terms of updating that economic impact. >> i think it's impo
